New Moroccan Palette Look!

I finally got to test a color out of this palette! My other eye is so swollen. (lol) I really like this palette because the colors are everyday colors. The eyeshadow is also really soft on my skin. I also dyed my hair back black because I think it brings my colors out more.

*Eyebrow Alert*!!

I had to post this because I have been seeing this problem for so long. Being in college, you see it all. From really thick brows to no brows. From over drawn eyebrows to not drawn enough. Trends nowadays are making everyone wanna hop along for the ride and sometimes its fun but most times it just gets annoying. Eyebrows will forever be a trend because they are always changing. With that being said, I am about to about dark brows.

First thing is first, your brows should never be darker than your natural hair color. If you are a blonde or like a red head then you don’t have to read this. (lol) I am not judging anyone when I say this but super dark eyebrows looks really weird if your hair is not that color. When I was getting into makeup and didn’t really know what to do, I use to fill my eyebrows with a black pencil. I had red hair at the time so that was a definitely no!

I feel like I am pretty basic so I go for the light brown to dark brown eyebrows. The color fits my face and If I go darker, it just starts to look weird.

The Real Me

I don’t think you guys have really seen me, other than in my contact picture or my makeup pics. I just do parts of my face so that is all I show. I wanted to share this picture because we all have flaws. No one is perfect. I had a really good day today and wanted to wear a bright shirt with a neutral face and killer brows!

“Just ignore the bowl to the left” (LOL)

Perks Of Using Concealer Before You Apply Foundation…*must read*

I used the concealer from shopmissa.com. The concealer is a little thicker than the one I usually buy so this was perfect for a base. I also used it on my eyelid. Using concealer first really cover up those creases under your eyes so you don’t look tired. I swear it concealer fixes so many things. In the picture below, I only used that concealer. I am not wearing foundation or anything else.

Waxing, Arching or Threading Your Brows?

When I tell you that I refuse to get my eyebrows threaded, you better believe me! My sister got her eyebrows threaded and her brows were bleeding. I was so curious to why would people would want to do that to themselves. I mainly arch my eyebrows myself. I am more comfortable doing them myself. I also had them waxed one time and I liked it. I was laughing the whole time. (LOL) I am weird. I will never try to get them threaded because I will end up hitting and possibly cursing out the person who is doing them. I have a horrible pain tolerance so that is not for me.

Reasons You Should Take Care Of Your Brows

  • Your eyebrows are on your face-( so I have a saying which is “eyebrows are apart of your hygiene”. You always wanna make sure they are nice and clean.)
  • You feel good– ( The best feeling is when you are happy with yourself. Eyebrows play a big role if you didn’t know. When your eyebrows look good, you feel good.)
  • You wouldn’t want to have no eyebrows– (Everyone knows how we would look without brows. Not that good. We would look weird without them. If you are not taking care of your eyebrows then you are basically giving up.)
  • The hair wants moisture– (Your eyebrow hair does not want to be dry. They are trying to tell you to make sure you moisturize and wash your face so they can also get hydrated.) LOL)

Pencil or Powder?

I love eyebrow pencils but I am a powder girl. I feel like eyebrow powder gives you a more light, not too dark look. I only use eyebrow pencils for the ends of my eyebrows. I love and will forever love eyebrow powder. I use the eyebrow powder from Bh cosmetics Ultimate Brow kit. Maybe I will try to do a full eyebrow with just an eyebrow pencil but probably not now.
